40 Days for Life - Houston - Day 29

"Women are being sold a lie!"

Since the beginning of time, the devil has been telling women (and men) "You certainly will not die! God knows well that when you eat...you will be like, gods who know good and evil"(Gen 3: 4-5).  The devil encouraged Eve to disobey and take the very good that she already had. 

She already was like God: "God created mankind in his image; in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them"(Gen 1:27). She already new good and evil with pure eyes to see the good around her and with free will to recognize the evil of disobedience.  Also Adam, rather than defend his wife against the snake and took a bite of the fruit.

When Eve chose disobedience to God, death entered the world. The first human death in history was her own son, maliciously murdered by her other child!  

Similarly when encouraged to abort, a woman is sold a lie.  The scientific evidence of the life of the baby is often denied.  She is falsely told that she will not suffer afterwards, and she will have a chance to start over again as if she had never been pregnant. She often assures herself that she will be able to carry a baby whenever she is ready, if she ever is ready. 

What is given to her? Death. When a woman is sold the lie of abortion, the procedure is only complete when there is a death.  

What does she lose? She loses the life of her baby. She lives with suffering and often secret regrets. She increases her chances of cancer, risks her ability to carry a baby to term in the future.  She is even likely to lose the ability to emotionally bond with a man because abortion affects her sense of trust.

We pray that women will choose life, so their baby, their life and their future relationships will improve and be healthy rather than deteriorate further.

UNITING WITH 40 DAYS FOR LIFE AROUND THE WORLD!

As we unite with the International 40 Days for Life and their 375 locations around the world in prayer, we pray with them a specific prayer intention and scripture verse. 

Oct 25th, Day 29: 

Intention:  Praise God for His compassion in pardoning our sins and forgiving our transgressions. Give praise that He delights in showing mercy. 

Scripture:  Who is a God like You, pardoning iniquity and passing over the transgressions of the remnant of His heritage? He does not retain His anger forever, because He delights in mercy. He will again have compassion on us; and will subdue our iniquities. -Micah 7:18-19
